0 Highly-rated groundsman swaps Forest Green Rovers for Cheltenham Town

Life is a pitch for Forest Green groundsman Matt Rainey after landing a new job at Cheltenham Town.

Rainey, who has spent six seasons at the Blue Square Premier club, will move to the Robins on June 20 to take charge of their Seasons training pitches and assist head groundsman Terry Roberts at the Abbey Business Stadium.

Despite his tender years, the 29-year-old has forged a reputation as one of the best in the business and came close to landing two Premier League jobs before being snapped up by Cheltenham.

Three years ago he was named top groundsman in the Blue Square Premier at the annual FA awards, and he is looking forward to plying his trade at a higher level.

He said: "This is a great opportunity for me because Cheltenham have a great set-up and potential.

"They are similar to Forest Green in terms of being a warm, friendly club, but obviously they represent a step up for me.
